Reply to: xref Links to same file break in PDF

I would like to revisit this topic with the following observations:
1. when inserting an , XMetaL adds the filename to the href attribute, even if the link target is in the same file (#/. When generating PDF output, all is well.
2. when you have a DITA file that has only #topicid on the href pointing to a target in the same file, all is well in the PDF when using File > Generating Ouput for DITA Topic.
BUT
3. when you have a DITA file that has only #topicid on the href pointing to a target in the same file, and the topic file is linked into a DITA map, the links don't work in the PDF output when using File > Generating Ouput for DITA Map (they appear as links, but there is no page reference and don't take you anywhere).

Bug?
